Wipeout Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Wipeout was an American game show television series that featured contestants competing in (what was billed as) the "World's Largest" obstacle course. Wipeout was hosted and commentated by John Henson and John Anderson, while Jill Wagner acted as the "on-location" reporter. The show aired on ABC from June 24, 2008 to September 7, 2014. The interim reporter for one season was Vanessa Lachey. The creators and executive producers are Matt Kunitz and Scott Larsen. Distribution of the show was handled by Endemol Shine North America. The show was taped at Sable Ranch in Canyon Country, Santa Clarita, California, north of Los Angeles.
The concept and style of the show has been compared to several Japanese game shows, most notably Unbeatable Banzuke , SASUKE and Takeshi's Castle. This was brought to the attention of the Japanese broadcaster Tokyo Broadcasting System, who filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against ABC, charging that Wipeout is "a blatant copycat" of several of its classic Japanese competition game shows. Among the charges are that ABC bought search terms such as MXC (the Americanized comedy version of Takeshi's Castle) on Google to help drive traffic to the official Wipeout page, and that specific obstacles in Wipeout were knock-offs of challenges in those Japanese game shows.
Bigbubba55 says"The new wipe out sucks. Just isn\'t as good as the 2008 to 2014. Bring back the two johns and jill wagner!"
Previous Wipeout Fan says"This is terrible. They took a funny exciting show, that had two extremely funny and great host, in which my family and I would literally laugh out load at and have ruined it. First of all, the new host , really, no improv what so ever. Not funny at all. Then why Teams?? The editing is terrible, Childish camera work and graphics. We weren’t into the show 5 minutes to be reminded with put a woman of color in the White House. I’m done watching The New Wipeout. I’ll keep watching the old ones. Better host, better all around. "
Mike m says"The new wipeout sucks because the two hosts have no chemistry together. They. Are not funny John Cena may be the most boring host i have ever seen on TV. Who is this woman amd she is already injecting politics in her commentary The new show concept with all the contestant bios are very annoying. And the extra show filming is a waste of time. They can never duplicate the 2 original hosts and the two female hosts on the ground. What a waste ruining such a great show "
Jh says"Wipeout sucks. John and Nicole are not good hosts. Bring back the 2 John’s and Jill. Nobody is watching this crap without them"
Bill says"The hosts are terrible and talk to much. The film used sucks too. The must be paying Cena a bundle because they chopped the prize to $25g’s from 50g’s. Cancel this abomination."
Ezroller says"The new Wipeout show Blows. The Hosts are not funny in the least bit. Unlike the original guys, they add nothing to the show what so ever.The actual video or film footage is (grainy).Does not have the same live look as before! And the in your face with alternative life style contestants is sickening ! "
Joe says"First off, like alot of wrestling moments, this show now seems extremely scripted! Now, this show seems more staged than it ever did before! I just wish that they would have left where the show ended be the end...show repeats all you\'d like...i\'ll watch those! This reboot is too STUPID for anyone with a brain to follow! Thanks for killing a good show!"
WrenchForHire says"I almost couldn\'t watch the whole first episode. The old wipeout commentary was what made the show so good. I want to cancel my cable so i don\'t have to watch it ever again. The new wipeout is everything thats wrong with America. Anyone who grew up with wipeout is gonna be highly disappointed."
Nicole says"Its horrible now. The hosts jokes fall flat and they are just vulgar with no talent. The overall flow of the show is slow and not interesting."
Dave says"The new show blows. The hosts are terrible. They have to try to be funny. It doesn\'t work. Bring back John, John & Jill. Reruns of old Wipeout are more entertaining. "
Farkle says"Love the Original. The 2 new host suck. It like listening to grass grow. "
KATRENKA says"It is awful. Too much talk about contestants and little actual wipeout runs. The host are a joke. NOT funny at all. Won\'t be watching anymore."
Nikki says"The once hilarious and outrageous show wipeout (my favorite show ever) is now the most boring, and absolutely no humor what so ever. and actually the only way to watch it is with the volume on mute🤷♀️🤦♀️ or even better not at all. And the lady ( if you can call her that ) Nicole bryer says the most paverted and lame things the bottom line is either bring back John @ John if not then just cancel the show all together it will be better off !"
WipedOut Fan says"Huge fan of the 08-14 Wipeout. Have seen all episodes. The Johns were hilarious! New hosts are lacking. You can tell they are reading the work of some lame writer. When Cena is funnier than the comedian cohost you have a problem. And no, Cena isn’t funny. That isn’t the worst of it. Teams is an awful concept. Slows the action and actually makes the course easier. Old obstacles seemed better too. Overall, this is a dud. Doubtful that I will watch anymore episodes. If they can do away with teams and basically mimic the older show they could have a huge winner. "
Lo says"I loved the original Wipeout because of Jill and the Johns. John Cena and Nicole are not even close to funny and it makes me want to turn it off. I was so excited and ended up so disappointed. I used to laugh so hard and now I mute it so I don\'t have to listen to John and Nicole try to be funny. Whomever did the casting should be fired."
Fred says"Bring back John/John/Jill. New host and format are terrible. "
Big Time says"They took my favorite game show and made it totally unwatchable. Tge New Wipeout is so bad I can\'t even watch it. Bring back Jim Andersin and Jim Henson"
Ruby says"I tried to watch but the ne Wipeout is bad ; it sucks. Jim Henson, the other John and Jill had the best chemistry and made me laugh out loud. We used to really enjoy the show and when I heard it was coming back on TBS, I was happy. I saw the new hosts and thought I\'ll give it shot. I did. I won\'t be watching anymore unless some big changes are made."
Tim says"The original is a masterpiece of commentary and action. This reboot is an abortion of entertainment. The weird picture quality with neon and bright colors are hard on the eyes...the hosts are brutal on the ears. I don\'t know what\'s improv or scripted because it\'s all terrible. All of these reboots lack accounting for the formula responsible for the original success of what they\'re trying to duplicate."
